WHAT I NEED
Alabama Summer Book 5
Release Day: March 5, 2017
From New York Times bestselling author, J. Daniels, comes a sexy new STANDALONE novel.
Riley Tennyson has made a huge mistake.
At least, that’s what she keeps telling herself.
Showing up to her brother’s wedding pissed off and newly single, Riley seeks comfort in solitude and an open bar, until the gorgeous and irresistibly charming CJ Tully makes her a better offer―a wild night with the master of smooth-talking where nothing is off limits.
Riley does what any single woman would do, and a connection is made. One neither one of them can ignore. But when she comes home to the boyfriend she no longer thought she had, Riley buries her secret and begs CJ to do the same.
Forget about each other. It was a mistake. That’s all it was… right?
Desires are hidden. Distance is kept. Until one night CJ makes the ultimate sacrifice, and Riley can no longer avoid the man she can’t stop thinking about.
Not with him sleeping down the hall…

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
I am a huge fan of this series. I can’t even tell you just how long I’ve been waiting for this book and it was well worth every minute! This book can absolutely be read as a standalone. I think if this is your first foray into the Bama Boys world, this book without a doubt will make you want to pick up the rest of the series.
“I didn’t know there was different, and when you don’t have different to compare to, you don’t question what you have. You don’t know better until you’re with better.”
CJ Tully and Riley Tennyson hit it off immediately at Riley’s brothers wedding. Riley is newly single and knows there’s no broken heart that tequila can’t fix. Through innocent flirting and laughs about everything from coconuts and secrets, neither can resist the attraction. So their weekend of hooking up is unlike anything either one has experienced. CJ is hooked. And Riley simply can’t get enough. It turns out that there was some sort of misunderstanding between Riley and her ex. Or so she thought. She closes herself off to CJ. It was just a mistake. Right? Because how can something that feels so good ever belong to her?
“And if possible to look inside another person’s soul, I swear CJ doesn’t just peer at mine. He stares and studies it like I mean something to him. Like this is important.”
The connection between CJ and Riley is palpable. Their desire exhilarating. Their connection undeniable. But Riley thinks it was a slip up and it can't happen again. She breaks whatever they had going on and just wants to be friends. CJ is unhappy, but willing to take whatever he can as long as it means he gets to be near her. One night he does the unthinkable that will forever be ingrained in Riley’s mind. It’s that one night that changes everything and the trajectory of their lives. But how long can they keep this up? Were they ever truly friends? The author is meticulous in crafting a story that you simply will not be able to put down. Your heart will pound over the magnetic pull between these two.
“Do you have any idea how good you look being mine?”
CJ Tully. I love you and and your alpha ways but most importantly, your heart. He loved without words. Loudly and completely. His love knew no boundaries. He only saw Riley. I keep thinking the author can never top the last guy she writes and she continues to prove me wrong. J. Daniels is a true master at character development. She has this innate ability to make sure that every single characters leaves an imprint on her readers. You want to be their best friend. You root for them. Feel their joys and pain. Highs and lows. I fell for CJ the first time he said, Darlin’ and I claimed him mine as soon as I realized how deeply he could love.
“Tell me a secret.”
“I’m falling so fast for you.”
I was completely consumed by the Tully Charm. CJ where have you been all my life? Seriously, J, you outdid yourself with this one! What I Need was the perfect balance of fun, sexy, and romance. It was the book you want to read over and over because you can’t get enough. It’s the book you tell all your friends to read because you want them to know these characters. What I Need was like coming home.
J. Daniels is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Sweet Addiction series, the Alabama Summer series, and the Dirty Deeds series.
She would rather bake than cook, she listens to music entirely too loud, and loves writing stories her children will never read. Her husband and children are her greatest loves, with cupcakes coming in at a close second.
J grew up in Baltimore and resides in Maryland with her family.
